Noisematch joins big room recording revival
A new high-end recording facility located in the Miami Arts District has opened with a Solid State Logic Duality SE console at its centre. Installed in the control room of the Noiselab recording studio, the desk is able to record live performances and events from a separate soundstage called Noiseroom.
The Noiselab studio space was designed by Horacio Malvicino, and will accommodate a 20-piece jazz ensemble and is equipped to provide real-time audio and video streaming of live events.
Guangdong Stadium homecoming for Hins
Cantonese pop star Hins Cheung staged a concert at the Guangdong Stadium recently.
Ten years over since he last appeared in his hometown, he performed with the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra as recognition of his fans’ support. In turn, Sennheiser supported his performance with a wide range of equipment, particularly the miking of the orchestra.
Miking Matt Sorum’s Allstar Drum kit
Led by former Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum, The Rock N Roll Allstars hit the road to begin an unprecedented world tour this year. From behind a massive drum kit, Sorum led a choice rock line-up through a 2.5-hour show, performing songs from each member’s respective band.
The drum kit comprised two double kick drums, five toms and a suitably large array of cymbals – unsurprisingly, Sorum wanted to ensure it was a visual spectacle as well as delivering his sound. Key to both considerations was a suitable set of mics. He listed three considerations – ease of use, durability and visual appeal.
New York’s new live venue
A striking 1,600-seat music venue, the Paramount is the latest addition to New York’s live entertainment scene.
Located on Long Island, the Paramount is equipped to host major artists with a JBL VerTec powered line array system. The system was designed and installed by Maryland Sound International, led by project manager Ryan Beck.
The Paramount bears little resemblance to the the IMAC (Inter-Media Arts Center) Theater whose site it occupies. ‘The construction of the Paramount was one of the most dramatic “before and after” transformations I’ve ever encountered,’ Beck observes.
Leading Danish production company takes six DiGiCos
Uncertain of which of DiGiCo’s range of digital mixing consoles would best suit his Victory Tour Production operation in Denmark, or two, Jesper Sørensen’s simple solution to his dilemma was to order one of each – an SD7, SD8, SD9, SD10 and SD11.
Having agreed the order with Soundware Pro Audio Manager, he had a change of heart, however. His solution this time was to add another SD7, an SD rack, plus Optocore and Waves options for most of the consoles.
Green light for Adlib Audio’s dance moves
A recent Professor Green spring UK tour saw Adlib’s Audio division at the centre of a dance/dubstep frenzy. The sold-out tour was the popular UK rapper’s first with a full production, cementing the ‘live’ relationship between the artist and Adlib following 2011’s At Your Inconvenience tour.
Production Manager Trigger asked Adlib onboard, with front-of-house engineer Pat Tunbridge requesting an L-Acoustics V-Dosc rig and Midas Pro6 mixing desk – following his experience of it in Australia. Monitor engineer Ben Kingman chose to mix on a Yamaha PM5D.
Vivace Music raises Uruguay’s recording level
The latest big-room recording studio to open its doors has done so in the heart of Montevideo, the ‘Switzerland of Latin America’ in Uruguay.
Designed to welcome a wide church of music, the studio is equally suited to Latin, jazz, pop, rock and world music production. Through its flexibilty and capability, Vivace aims to establish a new standard of high-quality audio production for South America – and add momentum to the revival of the high-end recording studio.
PAS in the Park
The largest man-made water feature in any UK city, belongs to City Park, a six-acre public space in the heart of Bradford.
Complementing the intra-urban landscape of fountains, trees and green spaces, Pro Audio Systems recently provided a comprehensive technical infrastructure to support the gala opening of the new facilities.
